Swamp Thing or Carp Fly?

Here’s a glimpse of a new fly I’m tinkering with. Swamp thing or carp fly? It’s a carp fly for some fairly aggressive carp I’ve been after and the water’s really off-color. I’m going for mouth feel. If you were a carp, would you eat it?

It’s inspired by the leggy Gotchas I tied early this summer for an Andros bonefishing trip. So why wouldn’t it work for Colorado bonefish?

    Oh, there is not doubt that will work. Particularly if you are onto some aggresors, which is cool.

    Worked for those carp, but it turned into a better bass fly actually. All’s well that ends well.

    I like to to look at everything carp, and enjoy tying for them. That will work well! By the way, I ran since high school, did in college, kept up with it after, the Army sent me to compete at Boston long ago. Get a chance, run in The Equinox Marathon in Fairbanks, only Pike’s Peak demands more.

    And, nice site you have.
